Our 41st schedule has come in this morning!
While we were backgrounding on 2A-District 3, we got our 30th Northeast schedule with Terry Parker’s email, our fourth schedule from that district.
The Braves have frequently been a hub for wrestling activity in the city, and this year is no exception. Parker will kick off the season with a hosting gig, the Arlington Optimist Invitational, on December 1st and 2nd, its traditional season-opener. On the following Friday, the 8th, the Braves will travel to Orange Park for the Raider 6-Way event, a one-day duals event.
Duals will be the format for the Braves in closing out December and going into the new year. After OPHS, Parker will go to the Yulee Duals on December 15-16, then will make its perennial trip to Kissimmee for Harmony’s Longhorn Duals event, which moved a week back on the calendar. This year, it’ll be staged on December 22-23, and will be Parker’s last event for 2017.
To kick off 2018, Parker will engage in FHSAA post-season district duals, with 2A-3 being hosted by Ridgeview on January 4. The Braves’ next regular-season competition will be January 12-13, their traditional Army Duals two-day event that is a fixture for the second weekend in that month. Gateway Conference, at Sandalwood on January 19-20, will be the Braves’ first IBT since Optimist. Parker girls wrestlers will also compete in Cypress Creek’s Lady Bear Classic on January 20.
The regular season will come to a conclusion for the Brave varsity on January 26-27, when the Braves will host the two-day Parker Duals. Terry Parker will host 2A-District 3 once again this year, moving the date to Friday this year (2 p.m. start).
So that’s 41 schedules. Who’s 42?? YOUR SCHOOL??
